Andrew Anderson

 

Andrew Anderson qualified as an optometrist from The University of Melbourne in 1993, after which he completed Masters (1997) and PhD (2000) training at the same university. He subsequently undertook post-doctoral positions at the Devers Eye Institute, Portland, Oregon (2000-2002) and the Department of Physiology, University of Cambridge (2002-2004).

In 2005 he commenced a tenured lectureship within the Department of Optometry & Vision Sciences, The University of Melbourne. His work uses a range of psychophysical methods to determine how the human visual systems processes information, both in normal and diseased eyes, and how this information is subsequently used to make decisions. In 2012 he received a 4-year Future Fellowship from the Australian Research Council. He is also co-founder of the University of Melbourne Artists's Register (http://umar.trinity.unimelb.edu.au) which allows people across the University to meet for the purposes of organising musical activities, and is the coordinator of the undergraduate subject OPTO20004 "Perception, Illusions, and Art" that provides an introduction to the science of how the human visual system works and how this has been exploited by visual artists.
